RMERF Daily Count Concluded

migration-sites-ab_(1)

The 2017 Spring Migration Count has concluded and ran from Mar 1st to Apr 22nd with observers at the Mount Lorette site daily. This was the 26th consecutive year of vigilant recording. We thank all the sites’ principle observers and assistants in their daily viewing and reporting, a recognition to Cliff Hansen with organizing the count, and Peter Sherrington in receiving all the data and tirelessly producing the daily updates of the count.  A complete analysis and presentation will be forthcoming for this count.

Casino Fundraiser: Thanks

A big thank you again to all who helped at the RMERF casino!  It is only through support of many people (and the family members brought along!) that financially RMERF can strongly continue in its golden eagles and raptors migration observations, reporting, and educational outreach functions.  During the casino two days, I think too we had fun,  reviewed the Foundation work, and had some great conversations about life in general……  I thank too, our Advisors Val and Tony in leading us in the various roles, and dealing with chips and cash.
On top of the casino funds we receive, we made tips of $66.60.  We will know the final amount of funds from the two nights in September.
